About Me

My photo
Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!


Heaven is in Belgium

Weekend Reflection, After the Rain


James, over at Newton Area Photo hosts a new meme called Weekend Reflections.

This is what James wants us to do:

1)Post a reflection photograph
2)After I post my Weekend Reflections photo, add your name, country and link to MckLinky
3)Be sure that your link goes directly to your Weekend Reflections post.
4)Comment on other Weekend reflections participant's blogs.
Feel free to be creative. Remember this meme is for any type of reflection.


My photography class organized an early morning photo walk today. I was really looking forward to this. We’ve had severe rainy showers during the night, so I was hoping to find a couple of photogenic puddles. I’m always looking for reflections
in puddles. When you’re from the land of the rainy people,  you get to develop this habit! When I came across this gate, I knew this would be my Weekend Reflections photo.

Have a great weekend!

Very nice. Your reflection is perfect. I love Belgium. I was once in Brugge and loved it, just loved it. Nice to find your blog.

You don't know how good you are. Nice picture, very nice. Could be painted into an abstract piece it is so nicely balanced.

Melli said...

I am realllllllly MISSING rain right now... and we were PROMISED some overnight and it did not come... so I'm in a FUNK today! But I love your puddle! As a matter of fact, I think I covet your puddle... *sigh*

Regina said...

Beautiful refection!

Gattina said...

No sunraise but a very nice reflection picture ! Concerning puddles we are a very spoiled country !! Others have palm trees, we have puddles !
I think I will participate in this meme too, I like it.

I'm back. I know how you like to post pictures with lyrics. Have you ever heard the song "Rainy Day People" by Gordon Lightfoot?

Reader Wil said...

This is a perfect reflection. I am also of the rain people and we also have puddles, but I haven't seen such a photo like yours yet! Have a great weekend.

that's a very interesting fence and makes a fine reflection!

quilly said...

That reflection is almost mirror perfect! Excellent capture.

That is just perfect my Belgian Bombshell. Love it. Happy Saturday :)

Dimple said...

It's a very nice picture, and I agree with Betty that the gate has seen better days. The reflection could not see a better day, however!

James said...

I love it. That is a really nice reflection. You seem to have found the perfect spot to take the picture.
Oh I would like to take a photography class someday. :)
